4 stars Box full of The Blue magic

At last there is a nice anthology of one of the leading Czechoslovakian fusion bands. This 2009 release includes every album album recorded from the beggining in 1969 till the broke up in 1981.

The surprise is presence of the live performance with Jazz Q 1971. Unfortunatelly it's the only full(?) live album there. The 9th CD is a bit dissapointing - most 'bonus' music are singles, there is lack of previously unreleased and live stuff. There ain't any additional tracks added as they were on single re-releases of each album.

The second 'bad thing' is language. Someone responsible for this release forgot that not only Czechs and Slovakians might be interested in buying it, so everything is written in Czech - from album credits to whole booklet, telling a story of BE (for ex. - every major SBB release is bilingual).

Still - it's 'everything in one place' and also the price makes this anthology affordable for everyone.
